+1 for Wolfe. We got one in the 95 9C1, and it's working wonderfully. Our problem was elswhere, but the opti I got from Wolfe looked great (he personally checks each one before sending it out) and was reasonably priced. I'll be getting spares from him.

Be careful...

Be careful with that, you are traveling a dangerous road there. I recently ordered an opti from Wolf after checking everything else, including: ICM, coil, fuel pressure, TPS, MAF, electrical connections, vacuum leaks, coolant temp sensor, plugs, plug wires..

Basically check everything else before condemning the opti, as usually it is something else. The opti gets a bad rap for being unreliable and prone to failure, however, it is actually a great design; especially the '95 and up opties for our b-bodies that had an improved design and the vent lines.

Just watch out for air, fuel and spark, you need those 3 things to run. If you get that garage special opti, and it don't work, you are then stuck with 2 potentially bad parts and you will effectively double or more your troubleshooting times finding out the real problem.
And that would not be cool:D

Later,
Tony
